Imagine sleeping in a room filled with chocolate - hanging from the walls, the Christmas tree, platters filled with the decadent treats, even the sheets decorated with chocolates.
But sleep wouldn’t come easily for this Open Jaw’er, because it’s not just any chocolate that Club Med has decorated its La Rosiere resort room with -- it’s Terry’s Chocolate Orange. The specialty chocolate which looks like an orange and literally has to be smashed before unwrapping.
The melt-in-your-mouth chocolate is combined with natural orange extracts to create a uniquely sensual flavour. We’re sold.
France’s La Rosiere resort has opened what it calls "the world's first" hotel room inspired by this specialty chocolate. Why they hadn’t thought of it before is the important question here.
The Chocolate Oranges are creatively spread throughout the room. Personalized stockings are filled with the orange packages, and, more importantly, within arm's reach.The hotel room's sheets are decorated in the signature blue and orange colours of the Terry's chocolate, and a Christmas tree is adorned with the prized Chocolate Oranges themselves, ready for the picking, smashing and enjoying.
There’s even scented toilet paper – "a treat for all your senses," according to Club Med.
And when guests have devoured all the in-room chocolate, the VIP menu has them covered, serving Hot Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Orange desserts and more traditional Chocolate Oranges.
There’s also skiing and other outdoor activities if you really must leave the room. How many chocolate oranges you can stuff down your ski pants?
